Frost

Alex Frost was in residence at GA in 2000 during which time he created a fanzine with other artists at Grizedale at the time and two members of staff from the Forestry Commission (they were ALL invited to contribute).

"Frost’s beguiling and detailed works delicately haggle with a compromised minimalist ideal. In essence, this anti-macho perspective engages processes historically relegated to craft. Frost’s primary interests include the trappings of aspirational consumer culture. His source material is often derived from the products associated with adult sophistication in the 1970s and 1980s. The packaging, logos and branding associated with products such as Rice Dream and Optrex are reproduced through a deliberate and informed process of alteration and experimentation in both medium and scale."
